5:33 am
republican candidate either broke the law or lied about his tenure with the company. >> well, what stephanie said, rightfully so, is that either mitt romney was lying on s.e.c. forms and misrepresenting to his investors, which could be a felony, that he was the sole owner, president, ceo of bain capital from 1999 until almost the end of 2001, or he wasn't and represented that he was. this is a campaign for president of the united states. mitt romney is running for president of the united states. you know, he and his campaign team leadership need to put their big boy and big girl pants on and defend his record. >> coming up on morning joe, by the way, we'll talk with the deputy campaign manager for the obama campaign, stephanie cutter. you heard debbie wasserman schultz talk about her. she was the first to suggest

5:35 am
you know, i was relieved that nobody was hurt and i felt bad that good tomatoes were wasted. other than that, it was not particularly bothersome. secretary clinton back in washington this morning ending her nine-country trip. the u.s. military is investigating a deadly incident in the persian gulf yesterday where an american navy ship opened fire on a fishing boat. happened about ten miles off the coast of united arab emirates near dubai. a spokesman says the refueling ship seen here targeted the smaller vessel after that vessel ignored warnings to change direction. the fishing boat was speeding toward the american ship in broad daylight according to the report. the crew were indian citizens, one much whom was killed. the shooting raised new tensions as the u.s. builds forces there to counter iranian threats to shut down the straight of hor z

5:44 am
at halftime, president obama did his part to put that debate to rest. >> you know, this is a generational thing. i was around in '92. i was a bulls fan. so i've got to go with the original dream team. and i suspect that michael and sir charles and others would point out they were probably never down at any point in any of their games. you know, but this is a great team. unbelievable talent and kobe is a competitor. you expect him to do a little trash talking whenever the opportunity arises. >> baseball now, kevin youkilis made his return to fenway. this time as a member of the visiting white sox. got a nice reception from the boston fans. >> third baseman, number 20, kevin youkilis.

5:52 am
returns. >> romney is the man we need in the white house thanks to his years of business experience at bain capital. so obama is now attacking romney's record. it's like he's hell-bent on making the word bain synonymous with a source of harm or ruin. >> i had no role whatsoever in the management of bain capital after february of 1999. not that that would have been a problem to have said that i was with the firm beyond that. >> see, he wasn't there when they did those bad things that he was in no way associated with, but it's fine if he was. >> retired retroactively to february of 1999 as a result. >> okay. in 2002 he retired retroactively back to 1999. >> if mitt wins in november, he's beaten obama and if obama wins in november, mitt can just say he retroactively retired from the race in 2009.

5:54 am
understand the institutional advantage that he gains from the government's tax code largess. that's a little offensive to people. especially considering romney's view on anyone else who looks to the government for things like, i don't know, food and medicine. >> nothing is really free. it has to be paid for by people in the private sector. >> and horse prom is black tie, [ bleep ]. >> i want to go to a horse prom. still ahead, on "way too early" your tired texts and tweets are next.
